This outpaces HIGH END 2015 and marks this year as a completely sold out event as there could be no more / new exhibitors. Held from May 5th through 8th at the M.O.C., HIGH END 2016 was without a doubt Europe's most prominent and largest audio show of the year. The first day of the exhibition is exclusively reserved for trade visitors and media from all over the world.
